In House #1629: New Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Jeffrey Foucault; Rosalie Sorrels & Elijah Wald in Pocatello Tonight

Next month Anti releases a new recording from the legendary Ramblin' Jack Elliott. Featuring sixteen versions of songs written by everyone from the Carter Family to Hoagy Carmichael, Leadbelly to Ernest Tubb, I Stand Alone mirrors Elliott's legacy. Seen by many as one of the major connections between early artists like Woody Guthrie and everyone from Bob Dylan to Bruce Springsteen to Beck later on. An equally diverse set of friends joins him for the ride, among them Lucinda Williams, David Hidalgo (Los Lobos), Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney), and DJ Bonebreak (X, the Kintters).

Also today, we get to the new release from singer-songwriter Jeffrey Foucault. Ghost Repeater is the fourth album from Foucault, out on Signature Sounds, continuing in the tradition of artists like Townes Van Zandt and Greg Brown.
